This manuscript attempts to shed the light on the authentication systems’ evolution towards Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) from traditional text based password systems. The evolution of authen-tication systems is commensurate with that of security breaching techniques. While many strongauthentication products, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO), biometricsand privileged access management (PAM), have existed for a long time, the constant deluge ofdata breaches and password database leaks has re-illustrated the weakness in many authenticationparadigms. As a result, the industry is both re-thinking they way we approach authentication andmaking efforts to simplify previously complex or expensive authentication technologies for the everyhuman being.
